How do you figure out how much caffeine you are consuming?
You just look on the label of your drink or maybe on the Starbucks website, right?
That works, but it’s a hassle, and it's not easy to find caffeine info for all drinks. And, they might list the caffeine for a medium, but you’re having a large.
And what about when you’re brewing at home?
For these reasons, we decided to update The Caffeine Calculator to now include TWO great tools.
We want you to have a quick and easy way to look up how much caffeine is in your cup of tea...whether you're brewing at home or buying on the go (we at Eco-Cha even grab a cup of Starbucks tea from time to time).
...we’ve added caffeine in Starbucks tea info to the Calculator!
Now you can compare caffeine in loose leaf tea brewed at home with caffeine in your teas on the go.
Here’s what’s new…
The Basic Caffeine Calculator
Caffeine in Starbucks Tea
Starbucks has a few tasty teas (we've even visited the farm Taiwan Starbucks get their Oriental Beauty from). BUT, if you want caffeine information you’ll have to search through the Starbucks Website Menu.
And that can be time consuming.
To help you with this we’ve added the most popular Starbucks teas to the easy to use drop-down on the caffeine calculator.
So whenever you want to know how much caffeine is in your tea…just scroll and click. It Looks like this…
You’ll see a menu to select your tea, the serving size, and at the bottom the amount of caffeine in your cup.
Here's how you select your tea (and notice all the new teas!)
We’ve kept all the loose leaf teas included before, but added teas like the Starbucks Chai Tea Latte, Teavana Chai Tea, and the Matcha Green Tea Latte.
Because we’re including ready to drink take out teas, this calculator is simple: tea type, serving size, and caffeine amount. Just click and go!
Advanced Tea Caffeine Calculator
Now for the home brewers…
Of course we still have the advanced caffeine tool for the loose leaf tea lovers.
If you haven’t used it before, you'll want to check out the complete guide.
But as a quick refresher. You get to choose tea type, serving size, AND steep number!
Your feedback is what has helped improve these caffeine tools. So thank you, and keep it coming! You told us number of steeps mattered, you told us to-go teas mattered. Tell us what else would be helpful and we'll do our best to make it happen!
For the Caffeine Calculator we’re going to add more teas, including more loose-leaf and some off the shelf bottled teas. If it's out there we aim to add it. This will take some time though as there's so much caffeine information on the web and we verify accuracy for each tea we add.
For the Advanced Caffeine Calculator we’re working on a really cool feature that will allow you to choose the amount of tea your brewing! So soon you’ll be able to chose tea type, serving size, steep number, AND the amount of tea you're using.
If you like these tools, please share them on Facebook, with your friends, and link to us here. That really helps us to know what we’re doing is helpful!
So, what do you think of the new and improved Caffeine Calculator with Caffeine in Starbucks Tea?
